2022 Registration Opens Friday, June 10, 2022 8:00AM ET

Join the Police K-9 Association on Saturday, October 8, 2022 for the 2nd Annual K-9 5K! Our unique event features a live K-9 demonstration after the race, fun photo opportunities and a FREE Chase the Tails 1/4 mile kids' race! Stick around after for our post-race celebration party!

The Police K-9 Association is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and charitable organization responsible for training and assisting nearly 50 active and retired K-9 teams between 20+ departments. As the need for K-9's continues to grow, so does our organization's responsibility to support these K-9 teams. There are significant costs in starting and maintaining a prosperous K-9 program. City and county financial budgets often limit needed funding for K-9's. The PK9A assists agencies by offsetting the cost of education, training, equipment, and the medical needs of both active and retired K-9's.

This is a dog friendly event! To be sure everyone has a great time, there are a few rules to keep everyone safe and happy:

  • Any dog attending the event in person must be registered. After you begin your registration, you will have a selection to add on your dog registration.

  • All well behaved dogs are welcome and must be leashed with a maximum 6' lead.
